Was the axing of Ganguly from the Test team right?
The Kolkata public and former Test cricketers like EAS Prasanna and Kirti Azad have expressed shock and disappointment at the axing of Sourav Ganguly from the Indian Test team. Do you agree that the stylish left-hander has been given a raw deal?

BRING BACK GANGULY  NOT ONLY AS A PLAYER BUT AS A CAPTAIN!!

Dear Sir,

Let the powers that be not stand on prestige.  Ganguly has to be brought back not only as a player but also as a captain of the Indian team.  Please note that Indian team needs him very badly.  It was Ganguly who weaved the Indian team into a wonderful unit and it was under his stewardship that India reached the finals of the last world cup.  That apart, India team came to be  respected team and it was no more a underdog team.  Slowly that cohesiveness is getting lost and to string it back and produce positive results , Ganguly is needed.

We saw the last match of Chamions Cup against Aussies.  Dravid was looking bit lost.  The pace bowlers were struggling.  Only Harbhajan And Dhoni looked ever confident.

Dear selectors, your action in getting ganguly at the helm will win you many admirers.  Forget the reaction of Greg Chappel.

We Indians want the world cup very badly.  Only Ganguly can do it.  He is shrewd, wily, cunning and a firm captain.  The adjectives may be negative.  Who bothers.  Cup is more important.

R. CHANDRASEKHARAN

The perfect Ganguly

It really feels sad when a player like ganguly is axed from the team.
Ganguly has done a great job for the indian team.India did well under him.
But honestly and without his realization things got a bit carried off.
Though axing him was sad , it was right decision at that moment of time.But its time he should be back and he should should do the seconday job under Dravid to motivate the team.Let Dravid Lead the team and let Tendulkar and Saurav also motivate the team members. Ganguly did make some mistakes but his experience can be useful. Ganguly is a great player and if he sits down and evaluates his positives and negatives then it can be a great thing for the nation.

Sadly no one in the country realizes how Great Greg Chappell is.
Greg Chappell's experimentation lasted a little longer than perhaps even he would have expected.Gregs experiments brought into limelight so many stars , the young players did well but till they got carried away by the media attention.Pathan is one such example. India has no scarcity of talent but attitude and discipline is what is lacking. Its not just the indian team , even the indian specators or indian citizens who are expecting india to do well or blaming them when they do not play well lack that attitude.

Common indians you are one of the best creations of Mother nature.You are one of the best races which ever existed but sadly 400 years of slavery under differnt civilizations has somehow suppressed your genes and your self knowledge. The whole world admires india but perhaps only for the past of india , without realzing the present of india. Ricky Ponting admits that india is talented and admires indian cricket team more than another team.

The world cup will be won by indians , the real indians , the indians who know where they come from.
The world cup cannot be wob by models appearing in ads , more concerned on the Logos of the Companies sponsoring them.The cricketers should be as committed as Netaji or Bhagat Singh if they want the world cup.

Give Ganguly another chance and Do'nt hate Greg Chappell.
Greg Chappell and John Wright were the Best Coaches we ever hired.
Chappell's job is more or less over.Chappells experiements have
brought into picture some very talented players.Now its the players who
have to do the job,no matter who plays.

A good team does not lose a match if a player is dropped though he performed well in the previous match.A good team does not lose a match because a player was sent down in the wrong order.A good player is one who can perform in any order he is sent anytime and this is the sign of a good player and this is the sign of a good team.

A good harmony between Ganguly,Tendulkar and Dravid can be very good for the indian team with young talented players.

  Ganguly was a great player, foundly called the ''Bengal Tiger''.

Ganguly was a great player, foundly called the ''Bengal Tiger''. Unfortunately West Bengal had only one tiger, which has gone extinct or
you can say it is scared of hunting (batting) so much so that on seeing a lamb(bouncer) it runs away. We pray that the tiger will recall its hunting ways and rule the jungle yet again.
